King of Charms is a brand-new slot game from Inspired Gaming released in November 2020. It’s inspired by Celtic culture and the luck of the Irish. The King of Charms is a Leprechaun who will hopefully show you the way to the gold. Other brilliant games from the Inspired Gaming portfolio include popular titles such as Reel King Megaways, Stacked Fire 7s, Gold Cash Free Spins, and Neon Pyramid.
The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels with ten pay lines. You can place your bets for as little as just £0.10 per spin up to a maximum of £20 per spin. Instead of the usual features like free spins, wild symbols and multipliers, King of Charms has two unique features called Hot Spins and something called Spin Chance. We’ll go into more detail later on in the review. Finally, the maximum win in the game is a very lucrative 2500x your stake.
Graphics and Theme
The King of Charms online slot game has a nocturnal theme. The backdrop to the reels is a view of the land surrounding a royal castle. There are rolling hills, a huge oak tree and a candle-lit castle in the distance. The moon is out in full, and the night’s sky is filled with stars and a scattering of clouds. The reels themselves are encased with a wooden border with gold decorations at each corner that are embossed with a Celtic inspired design. There is also a string of four-leaf clovers running around the border, so the luck of the Irish is with you! Finally, the game logo sits on top of the reels also covered in four-leaf clovers.
The soundtrack is uplifting, jolly and olde worlde. The instruments involved like the fiddle, flute, tin whistle, lyre and bagpipes show the Celtic influence. It’s a repetitive tune that will help to keep you focused on the task in hand. It wouldn’t be out of place in a fantasy film like Lord of the Rings or The Chronicles of Narnia. The reels spin silently but come to a stop one by one with a popping noise. Finally, when you win, you’ll be greeted with a classic arcade winning noise followed by the sound of your winnings being counted.
The low paying symbols in the game are made up of the playing card symbols 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace. When you’re betting, the maximum five of a kind Aces are worth £400 or 20x your stake. The high paying symbols include a heart, a lucky horseshoe, a four-leaf clover, and a pot of gold. The pot of gold is the most valuable and is worth £5000 when betting the maximum of 250x your stake. There is also a King of Charms mystery symbol which is present during the Hot Spins round.
Hot Spins feature
This feature is triggered anytime players land a prize of 4x their stake. Hot Spins are played across 4, 5×3 sets of reels which will appear on your screen once triggered. The minimum stake that you can play on the hot spins is 4x your original bet that was used to trigger the round and there will be a winnings meter that tells you how many hot spins are available. This is worked out from the sum of your winnings that were used to trigger the feature. So, if you won £240 while betting the maximum of £20, you would have three hot spins at the value of £80 per spin.
If you win more money during the Hot Spins feature, your winnings meter will go up, giving you a chance for more Hot Spins. You will be able to play up to 100 Hot Spins if you get that far. The game ends when the winnings meter falls below the value of 4x your original stake or if the winnings meter reaches the maximum win.
The King of Charms symbol is active during the Hot Spins feature. When it appears, all of the King of Charms symbols will transform into the same mystery symbol giving you the chance to create massive wins.
The Hot Spin Feature is played at 100% RTP.
This feature gives you one more chance to land a winning combination when your credits are nearly gone. If your credits get below your current betting value but remain higher than zero, the game will give you the chance to wager whatever you have left on the Spin Chance wheel. The wheel is filled with red and green segments. If the pointer lands on a green section, you will be awarded a spin at your original betting value. If it lands on red, the last of your credits are taken away, and gameplay comes to an end.
Game How to Play

Then you can hit spin or use the autoplay feature to perform up to 100 spins for you. The game is played across a 5×3 set of reels with ten pay lines, however, when the Hot Spins feature is triggered the game is played across 4, 5×3 grids giving you lots more chances to win. It’s within the Hot Spins feature that you will have the chance to trigger the maximum jackpot of 2500x your stake.
